Lost and found : improving ascertainment of refugee-background Australians in population datasets
Paxton, Georgia, Kay, Margaret, & Correa-Velez, Ignacio (2012) Lost and found : improving ascertainment of refugee-background Australians in population datasets. The Medical Journal of Australia, 197(10), pp. 552-553.
Humanitarian entrants remain invisible in existing populations datasets, and this has significant implications for health care and health policy. We suggest adding 'year of arrival' to population datasets; enabling the combination of 'country of birth' and 'year of arrival' to be used as a proxy for refugee status.
